will be increasing and decreasing on a budget. the first item is our prop k sales tax revenue. this amount was budgeted at 77.5 million, but as of january 14, we collected $2 million in sales tax revenue. we recommend we increase it by $7 million. then we have the corridor investment study. since the last budget we were able to obtain $81,000 and san francisco state university and general properties of the galleria. we anticipate spending about $63661 for the grant activity. in august of 2012 we were able to obtain a grant for $1.5 million. we will increase federal revenues and decrease other revenues by $251, 892 dollars. next we have the project, we are experiencing a total amount of $91,000 for next year. during the year we were able to obtain $434, 531. the treasure island mobility mansion, the item you just heard before, this item, we received a $500,000 federal grant from mtc. we will be spending approximately $64, 101 this year. this is the largest budget announcement. we are recognized $34.1 million revenues we'll be receiving from mtc. what happened is we anticipated this in the l
taxes the enforcements is a strategy to get to the process. the way i hope to approach this is to ask how many taxis and then a little bit of a side issue why is the sighed car not the solution. we ask ourselves that question, too, and we have an answer for you. then as the port structure there's a good solution we think are important and from there recommendations. as you know this is based 3 documents. i should review this is our general approach is to rely on multiple lines of studies. this is to get the local story and history it's difficult to get user voices so we use tourism hospitality and all the folks we talked to have their story. to reach out further we says drivers individualsly. in fact, a large sample was results by neighborhood. it was an informative reach. as economists we look at how it's structured. we look at other cities we have our model of taxi demand and we go out on the street so we did some extensive street observations. and you yourself have been looking at this for quite a while. we should start by defining what we mean by taxi shortage you can't what does
that remain. so an ongoing tax revenues and the port seeking to do the appropriate upgrade to a be able to host the events. i think the port expanded the cycle of their activities. and that was evaluated through the improved use of the ports facilities. at that point there have been a number of agreements about how certain things were going to be paid for during the events and preparations for the events and then on the capital side for narrow improvements that weren't going to be paid for by the ports. those are around pier 29 facility. so together and this is going to be used fulfill looking it now we've seen approximately $3.3 million of costs that the general costs were going to pay from lost rents from lost tenants and other consulting costs. of that amount $300,000 has been paid to the port and has been compensated. so what's the next step? after the america's cup events in 2012 we learned what with your not only what with your doing with the fundraising but to bring people to san francisco. on the fundraising front the mayor lee in particular and his staff really sort of working
afternoon commissioners tom exclusive demeanor of living city. i was on the sales tax committee and we put a lot of money towards budget transportation projects in san francisco. i see that i think incredible strongly that this plaza should be an open space. you've got a train running underneath us right now. we built the water front street car we're expanding ferry operations out here. it's a transit rich place probably in the entire continent. if there was an activation project we've been all for it it should be an open space. unfortunately we've got a parking proposal. every week day it will be parking for 12 hours so when it's not programmed the default is parking. let's take a space not dedicated to parking and turn it into a parking lot that will generate thousands and thousands of trips so people walking and cycling will having have all those cars and it will be less safe. it's not in keeping with any of your plans. i've included some policy plans there i was hoping the staff would have policy. it's a lost opportunity. it should really, really be a great open space. we've consistent
that but this is the last issue of the united tax news letter with the picture of the mayor on the cover. i think he needs to be called out on this. because the mayor of this city as turned his back on - the city's own taxi industry and this regulatory agency by endorsing the operations of companies that are operating in the city unlawfully, unregulated, unlicensed. and for the mayor to do that i mean it seems disgrace full to me. those companies are providing uncontrolled competition. their numbers are growing day by day and the direction that is solution is taking of putting out more taxis to meet more of their vehicles to take back taxi share from us. i don't think that's going to work. there's a very influential article that goes back a few decades called the tragedy of the common sense where, you know, the farmers use a common area to grace their cattle and, you know, farmers this farmer puts another cow an and another farmer puts a cow on it and pretty soon that's their individual benefit to do it but the cows are staffing. we in this situation are the cows senator something has to be done >> (call

with 395 million of that being general fund. 40 million public safety sales tax, about a million in state public safety designated allocations and grants. our federal revenue is also in grants. airport funds, the 338 staff that are assigned there. we provide services to other city departments and there is some revenue there. all other revenues come from services provided outside city departments, permit fees, fines administered by the department. one thing i want to call your attention to, if you look at fees, fines, and charges, in that amount is the $1.3 million that we were expecting to get from the housing authority. obviously the housing authority is having significant funding problems. the back funding that goes towards some 40 odd officers assigned to the public housing complex of san francisco. since its inception in 2004 as a result of the 34% in the reduction of violent crime, in those same areas, we just added some more officers last year prior to the fiscal crisis that's affecting the housing authority. so, we're working with the mayor's budget office to see if we can't figure
